Day one was spent exploring the area we went to visit the famous toilets in KawaKawa and went on the steam train through the town. Then we went across to Russell on the Ferry and tried the local beer.....it's good Also good in this area is the fresh fish, we had a lovely meal in the Just Seafood restaurant and another meal in the Swordfish club we would recommend both.
Today we went on a tour to Cape Reinga taking in sandboarding on the very high Dunes and a coach ride along the 90mile beach. Unfortunately the weather at the point where the Tasman Sea and the Pacific Ocean meet was fogbound and no view...shame It was still a great day which we wouldn't have done by car. Lovely fish and chips on the way home at Mangarua Fishing Port.
Met another nice couple from London doing the campervan thing. Hoping for better weather for the next two days and dolphin spotting, maybe even a swim with them.
